Real to Reel

The newly launched Real to Reel exhibition at the Imperial War Museum London goes behind the camera to discover the inspirations for War movies. A particular favourite in the office in Saving Private Ryan…

The Imperial War Museum shop has lots of exciting products to accompany the exhibition which include Whisky Candles, Bourbon Candles and Light-Boxes (pictured). The products are great as gifts or even to add a vintage touch to your home!
